Writer's Block

Sometimes I look at my blog and tell myself, "I need to update this thing." But I don't have anything too entertaining to write. And who likes to read an unentertaining blog? Furthermore, I can't take the easy way out of posting a silly picture of Douglas Michael on this post, cause I'm on a picture-less laptop.

Speaking of not knowing what to write about: Richard is in the process of once again applying for two more scholarships. Of course, each of them asks for an essay, with different questions. Both Richard and I are pretty poor essay writers. And it's frustrating, because even though he loves his program and his field of choice, it's difficult to adequately express this on paper. Especially when the essay topic is so generic like this one: How you see the attainment of your degree affecting change.

Change? Are we all following in Obama's footsteps now with this popular "change" theme?

So, my fellow blog citizens, how would you see Richard affecting change by attaining his degree? I know the answer for me. 1. We could change jobs. 2. We can change apartments. 3. We could change vehicles. 4. We could change how much money we owe to the school. 5. We could have a plethora of babies. Hahaha. Love it! And new babies means a new generation of change!

Okay, I definitely don't think that's the answer they're looking for. What do you think?

He can make the world a more beautiful place- graphically? Haha. Yikes. Essays are lame- especially when his field has nothing to do with his ability to write an essay. Good luck with the essay. If you google "essay writing" I am sure a lot of helpful resources may come up.

Talk about how he can use his skills to help others who have great/honest companies or ideas reach out and affect others. His beautiful designs can showcase the abilities of others. (stimulating the economy?) Plus, he can bring a new level of honesty and openness to the design market by his personal integrity. Plus his designs could change the landscape of design as his innate creativity is nurtured. There are your three main points.
